I found this great little site today from someone else's post shouting out. The site has a PDF for their April publication that you can download or preview here. April Issue, and their blog link is:
They have great examples of cards, guest designers, and a fun atmosphere. Check it out!

Fun with ATC's

I've joined a couple more ATC swaps. What is an ATC, you ask? It's a 3.5 by 2.5 inch work of art. I call it a "statement of art". You can then use the ATC's on cards, scrapbook pages, whatever afterwards. You could even put your business card info on the back and have a fancy business card showcasing the cool you!

I've included two of the three (the 3rd one is still drying) of the swap I've entered. One group was called Fairies and the other group was purple. Enjoy!
